    Simply amazing to watch. basically it is trials riding at speed. have no desire to ever ride anything that gnarly myself though as it looks way too frustrating and painful!

    The redbull Minas Riders Enduro , to me, looks harder and scarier than erzberg

    Is there anywhere to watch these events online? I don't do TV subscriptions. The only thing hooked to my TV is a $20 DVD player from Walmart.

    Erzeberg somehow had a near 3 hour video up same day as event. The on board camera thing Jarvis did was amazing. How he could spend that much time stuck behind wannabes in the deep woods and still get 2nd I have no idea.

    Wannabes?

    Anyone who even started on the front row is a real contender.

    Just shows how hard this terrain really is.

    Only compared to Jarvis,they were flipping their brains out and or stuck where as he can chug his way through generally. Hard doesnt begin to describe it,the camera never shows how steep this stuff is.

    Count me in. The top riders are unbelievable.
    My cousin went to a Graham Jarvis riding school a couple of years ago. There was a hill in the woods that no local rider had ever climbed. Jarvis made it all five times he tried, and rode back down each time. Guys like that are magicians.

    Jarvis does seem to always be idling, or just above idle, at most times. I swear he could do just as well with a 20hp bike. Natural talent, for sure.

    The top extreme enduro racers are the absolute masters of throttle and clutch control. Amazing how they maintain traction when all other fail...
